Communication is always going to be very important in a relationship. And any mature guy who is in a relationship with a girl is still going to want to encourage free and open communication. However, that shouldn’t mean that he has to enjoy it.
There are a lot of conversations that a man would absolutely dread when he’s with a woman. Girls and boys tend to speak completely different languages. And it gets difficult whenever a girl isn’t aware of the kind of impact that her words might have on a guy.
If you happen to be in a relationship with a man, then you are going to want to stay mindful of what you say. You never know when the words that you use are going to rub him the wrong way. In general, you have to make yourself aware of the many ways that your words might impact him.
Here are a few things that all guys hate hearing from their girlfriends:
1. You remind me of my dad.
No guy ever wants to have to compete with his girl’s dad. Even if you genuinely think that he resembles your dad a lot, keep it to yourself. No matter how good or how pure your intentions might be, this is not something that he is going to receive all too well.
2. Why can’t you be more like my ex?
Never compare your man to anyone else. That’s a general rule of thumb that you should always stick to in your relationship. But more importantly, never compare your current man to an old love or a past flame. He is never going to respond positively to a remark like that. You have been warned.
3. Do my clothes make me look fat?
He knows that this is a trap. If he says yes, then he’s going to have to deal with the wrath that you give him for calling you fat. If he says no, then you might call him out on being a liar to save you from your feelings. No one wins here.
4. Are you sure that’s the smart thing to do?
Even if you think that he’s completely stupid about a decision that he’s going to make, you need to be more sensitive about letting him know about it. Don’t resort to passive-aggressive remarks such as this one. It’s only going to infuriate him and make him want to do it even more.
